Leila Avenue Functional Bicycle Facility Study Backgrounder

The Pedestrian and Cycling Strategies identify a need to install protected bike lanes on Leila Avenue as part of a key east/west connection across the north end of the city. The 2018 Pedestrian and Cycling Program Action Plan forecasts spending of $250,000 in 2019 for a Functional Bicycle Facility Study on Leila Avenue to engage the public and develop a functional design for the installation of protected bike lanes on Leila.

Leila is scheduled for major rehabilitation work between McGregor and McPhillips in 2020. Estimated cost for the rehabilitation project is $6.2 million, and should include installation of the planned protected bike lanes as part of the project.
